McVey grew up in Cockfosters, North London and was educated at Queen Elizabeth's Boys' School, Barnet.
McVey started out as a member of the new wave band Bim in the early 1980s, in which he was the lead singer. The band released one album in 1982, Boobams Out!
and seven singles from 1980 to 1982.
In 1986, as one half of duo Morgan-McVey, they released the single "Looking Good Diving", whose B-side "Looking Good Diving with the Wild Bunch" would later be reworked into Neneh Cherry
's 1988 single "Buffalo Stance".
In 2003, McVey along with Paul Simm, Silvio Pacini and Neil Pearson released the self-produced album 162
, under the name of Virgin Souls.
In 2006, McVey (under the name Burt Ford) along with Neneh Cherry, Matt Kent (aka Karmil) and Lolita Moon released the album Laylow
, as a band called CirKus. In 2008, CirKus (with the same line-up) released their second album Medicine
In 1983, McVey fathered a son, Marlon Roudette, with Vincentian artist and designer Vonnie Roudette.
McVey met Neneh Cherry in 1987 at Heathrow Airport while they were en route to Japan as fashion models as part of London Designer Ray Petri's Buffalo Posse. The couple wed in 1990; they have two daughters. One of their daughters is singer Mabel. The family lived throughout Europe. In 1993, they moved near Málaga, Spain and lived there until 1999. Briefly in 1995, they lived in Brooklyn, New York, where they had purchased a home in the Park Slope neighborhood. Soon after moving in, the couple was held up at gunpoint and robbed by a teenage bandit. They headed back to London's Primrose Hill, eventually migrating to Cherry's native Hässleholm, Sweden, living in the same schoolhouse-turned home (featured in the Homebrew
album's artwork) where Cherry was raised.
